Krzysztof Piatek is the protagonist of our column “The Poet of the Week” after the twenty-sixth matchday of Serie A. The Polish center forward of Fiorentina decided on Sunday’s match in Florence againstAtalanta with a nice goal from a true striker.
Piatek presented himself very well in the Tuscan capital: in fact since returning to Italy he has scored 6 goals in 5 games (one goal every 77 minutes). At the moment he is not making us regret it Dusan Vlahovic, which averaged one goal every 102 minutes.
On the other hand, his career has always been characterized by super beginnings. In Italy both al Genoa that the Milan he scored in bursts especially in the first few games, showing that he did not feel the pressure of a “newcomer” at all. After the unfortunate parenthesis atHerta Berlin, Gunman he returned to Serie A to show everyone that his gun still has a lot of cartridges to shoot. And he is showing it very well.
Arriving in Florence with the role of supporting actor, Piatek immediately overturned all hierarchies. The transfer of the Serbian striker to the Juventus he certainly freed up an important place in the purple offensive department. There was, however, the competition to beat Arthur Cabral, bought by Fiorentina in the very last days of the transfer market and candidate for the starting shirt and the heavy role of Vlahovic’s replacement. The Brazilian born in ’98, however, is still experiencing a phase of acclimatization, and so Piatek was immediately found ready, winning his place at the center of the viola’s attack.
The goal of the Pole is to stay in Florence. He arrived from Hertha Berlin with the formula of the loan with the right of redemption (set at 15 million euros) and is proving once again that he is very well in Italian football. He will try to tell about him on Saturday as well Reggio Emilia against Sassuolo, a team dear to Piatek: in September 2018 he scored his first double in Serie A against the neroverdi.
